Why Your BFF Might Not Be Forever…
What To Do When Life Takes You Down A Different Path
Everyone has friends that they’ve known forever. Not only do you share childhood memories you’ve also grown-up together and been through a lot. You’ve gone through many experiences and your friends have always been a big part of your life.
Then the time comes when you’re forced to leave your hometown and make new friends in the big wide world. Whether you leave school to go to university, or move home to a new city – it’s a daunting prospect knowing that your friendships are no longer safe and convenient. Instead, you’re faced with the scary task of getting to know new people.
Anxiety rushes all over you and scary thoughts cross your mind. What if people don’t accept the annoying habits your lifelong friends have learned to love? What if your senses of humour clash? What if you simply don’t “click” with anyone around you? Will you be alone forever?
Fast forward a few weeks and your worries are soon forgotten. You begin to realise that your home friends were the only ones to comment on your annoying habits. Your humour extends far beyond your inside jokes and instead you form some of the strongest connections you’ve ever made.
You’ve made a fresh start in your new surroundings. So what does this mean for your old friends?
Your new life has opened plenty of opportunities for yourself. You’ve experienced new things and when you go to tell your old friends, they just don’t get it. Your new friends however do, because they’re experiencing it with you. After all you share the same interests and lifestyle as them, so why wouldn’t they?
You soon realise that just because you have history with your old friends, doesn’t mean it can keep the friendship together forever. Sure, you may remain friends but having a lack of shared interests, is going to affect your relationship, and ultimately tear you apart. *sobs into pillow*
